Re: folding net

The guides on Christmas Island make these to release the bonefish. The wood is soft and it floats if you drop it. ( Hau Bush, same wood the Hawaiians used for the outrigger on their canoes)

Re: Furled vs. Single Strand

I just took out all my rods and all my fly lines, both level and braided, and tried them out to see which I liked the best. I even tried different weight and bulkiness flys on each line.
